 e objectiveof the longitudinalstudy was tovalidate clinically and planimetrically the healing of venous ulcers with a prototype of supplemented medical honey, native to Chile. Healing of venous ulcer requires health resources and nursing time. Natural therapies, such as honey, are considered healing, and the nurse is responsible for incorporating them in the management of the care of people with injuries. 22 patients with venous ulcers participated, from health centers of Padre las Casas, Chile, vo-lunteers of the CORFO 13IDL2-2329 project, treated with a medical prototype of native honey, supplemented with antioxidants and certifi ed antibacterial activity. Clinical and planimetric fo-llow-up of the area and perimeter decrease, associated with the use of the prototype was carried out under a nursing care management protocol.  e analysis of images was with the Software Ima-geJ®, whose data were subjected to non-parametric statistics with the Software IBMSPSS-21.0. e area and perimeter reduction were statistically signifi cant for type 3 and 4 ulcers, with a median area reduction of 95.41 % and 84.40 % for perimeter, both between the second and third measu-rements contrast. It also highlighted the median number of days of healing in type 4 ulcers with 124 days. It was concluded thatthe application of clinical honey and a nursing care management protocol, based on a multifactorial treatment and a uniform cure criterion, demonstrated reduction of the areas and perimeters of healing, with emphasis on debridement.
